Quotes from The Crime of Living Cautiously by Luci Shaw

Security is mostly superstition. It does not exist either in nature, nor do the children of men as a whole experience it. Avoiding danger is no safer than outright exposure. Life is either daring adventure, or it is nothing
Helen Keller

Only those who risk going to far can possibly find out how far one can go.
TS Eliot

We must never confuse dissent with disloyalty.
Edward R Murrow

Life shrinks or expands in proportion to one's courage
Anias Nin

Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn't do than by the things that you did. So throw off the bowlines. Explore. Dream. Discover
Mark Twain

You gain strength, courage and confidence by every experience in which you stop to look fear in the face...you must do things you think you cannot do
Elanor Roosevelt
